“excellent day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

I'm 30 and I went to the beach house for the first time with a few work friends. I had never been before because I felt in comparision to magic mountain the beach house was for young children.. But we had a ball on the waterslides and we were definatly made to feel welcome. Pity the mothers and father of the children were not on the slides like we were. And like my father was at magic mountain when i was young..
Thanks Beach House..

Waterslides, putt-putt, dodgems, cafe, indoor play area - yes it all costs per ride/activity but what a great way to spend an hour or so!

“Excellent Fun for Kids”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

Great place for a birthday party, particularly in cold weather. Water is heated adn rides largely encloses (except for the bumber boats). Get a time based package.

“Not just for little kids!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

2 adults, 2 kids...... Kids loved it and so did us adults!!

Arcades/slides/dodgems/cafe/water boats it's all happening here!

We went for the 37 dollar 70 min pass that you can use most things for the one price. We found this really worth the money.

I would like to point out to the management that the guys toilets were a bit stinky so maybe could address that, especially with so many kids there, it's not pleasant

Would definately return as had a great time!

This is a great outing for a change from a beach day but is so expensive as you book a time block so its up to you as to how many rides you can get. no time to eat or have toilet stops, thats eating into your time. Bad luck about lining up for rides too, thats all part of it and again, eats into your time. To be fair, there are cheaper time blocks, but thats early morning and late afternoon which may suit families with younger children? Rides we had were water slides and bumper boats. Had to pay extra for ferris wheel and we had already spent nearly $80 already for 2 hour block!! Overrated
